MAX Front bumper wight

Need some advice:
I want to install front hitch to carry a Big Ruckus scooter. The weight of the scooter is 300lb and has plenty of flow through areas to let the cool air in. What is the max weight that can be carried on front hitch of a 2005 F350 F4X?
any one carry items on a front hitch like a scooter or generator?

A plow that you would have on that truck is 700lb to 900lbs. You should have no problem. Hope that helps.

Before I moved to Florida I had a Boss 9.5' V-Plow on my truck that weighed about 940lbs. The only restriction was I was not supposed to have more than 1 passenger when carrying the plow.

This was on my 2006 Crew Cab Long Bed SRW FX4.
